Problem solving is achieved through critical, objective thinking, which results in solutions that are both aesthetically pleasing and functionally proficient. This approach provides a vantage point that addresses the user’s emotional and physical needs.

We understand, plan and design content within the context of the entire experience, managing outcomes, not features. We believe great design is the unifying thread to a great experience.

Formation has delivered thoughtful, award-winning, research-based design solutions for over ten years. Our clients in healthcare, hospitality, sports, administration, education and the arts utilize our expertise to shape their cultures, define expectations and create opportunities to connect with their audience.

Formation is a design office based out of Houston, Texas that relentlessly pursues solutions with a sense of purpose, adaptability and appropriate response. We accomplish this through a unique interplay of research, strategy and design.
